1.     Never go super hungry to a party.  Overeating can mean too many portions (especially of the “bad” foods) or too large a portion.  This is, of course, quite subjective for each individual.  Only you know when you cross the line.  When you’re really hungry, blood sugar is much too low from lack of protein and you’ll find yourself making a bee-line for the pastry table.  Nibble some protein before you leave the house – it doesn’t have to be an entire steak, just a nibble.  Here are some suggestions:
